Companies Incorporation Rules – Fourth Amendment 2016

The Central Government on 1st October, 2016, amended the Companies Incorporation Rules and introduced the Companies (Incorporation) Fourth Amendment Rules, 2016. In this article, we look at some of the highlights of the Companies Incorporation Fourth Amendment Rules, 2016.

Conversion of Public Limited Company to Private Limited Company

In the Companies Incorporation Fourth Amendment Rules, 2016, sub-rule (2) of rule 33 has been modified. During the conversion of a public limited company to private limited company or vice versa, Form INC-27 must be filed for altering the articles of association (AOA). In sub-rule (2), the following was mandated with Form INC-27:

“A copy of order of the competent authority approving the alteration, shall be filed with the Registrar in Form No. INC.27 with fee together with the printed copy of the altered articles within fifteen days of the receipt of the order from the Central Government.”

Amendment in Companies Incorporation FourthAmendment Rules, 2016:

“Subject to the provisions of sub-rule (1), for effecting the conversion of a public company into a private company, a copy of order of the Tribunal approving the alteration, shall be filed with the Registrar in Form No. INC-27 with fee together with the printed copy of the altered articles within fifteen days of the receipt of the order from the Tribunal”.
